In reply to what is the difference btwn social anxiety and GAD, posted by yoyoma on July 19, 2004, at 14:33:54

My understanding is these diagnosis subsets are related to the prevailent "area" of anxiety. GAD tends to be an overall worry and fear over just about everything. SAD tends to be fear and "loathing" of being in social situations and interaction circumstances due to these situations causing extreme anxiety symptoms. I think there is ALOT of crossover and actually having only the components of one and not the other... well, maybe, but not for me. I was an equal opportunity anxiety person and I covered about all disorders related to anxiety.

Admittedly, there are a number of folks who are much more informed than I, but that's my take.
